@DAVID--Obviously race and class are conflated, and the dynamics in one country are not going to be like those in another. But if anything that only further undercuts RICK's point. He seems to imagine a dichotomous White/non-White world and then imagines some mechanism whereby this Whiteness equates to "pro-gayness." That makes no sense at all.

"Gay" was once seen as a nice little word abducted by perverts for immoral purposes. It has now been adopted by nice couples hoping to trot it out in "respectable" drag. And by marketers hawking it, wrapped in rainbows, as a glamorous consumer "lifestyle" RCB

Well, GB, looks like someone has never been in love. Poor thing.

It all depends on where you go to school and how much BS you can swallow on the subject. I don't know how old Rick is or where he went to school. The definition of "white people" used by morons like Maddow and O'Donnell is a small subset of caucasians. If you use that definition, then Marriage Equality is largely the province of countries where "white people" are the majority or the controlling population. You probably couldn't make the same claim using "caucasian" because the Middle East, North Africa, and much of India are majority caucasian.
Of course, that's why corrupt sociology professors at respected universities like Howard and Chico State try to narrow the definition of caucasian to "white people". If you will recall, that idiot Wendy whatshername from Harvard said that Lucia Whalen "isn't what we would call a white person". Lucia Whalen is one quarter Portuguese. You just shake your head that such idiots run around loose.
